Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves that produce real-time pictures of the structure and movement of internal organs and blood flow through vessels. Types of this scan include obstetric ultrasonography, which is only performed in perinatology cases, and duplex ultrasound.


Preparing for an Ultrasound

  • On the day of your ultrasound, it is recommended that you wear a loose-fitting, two-piece outfit.
  • Female patients may be asked to drink water to fill their bladders prior to certain exams.
  • To avoid delays, remember to bring a copy of your prescription.

If you are having an ultrasound interventional procedure, a radiology nurse will call you prior to your appointment to provide you with instructions and answer all of your questions.

Ultrasound Results

Atlantic Health System’s radiologists are board-certified and fellow-ship trained in the supervision nd interpretation of ultrasound examinations. They will interpret your images and send a signed report to your primary care physician or the physician who referred you for the exam.
